Hi everyone...hope you are all good and enjoying the warmer weather x Over at A Vintage Journey this month Astrid is the hostess and her challenge theme is Stencil It !! Here is what Astrid has to say:
"Create a project using at least one stencil, in a style that fits our challenge focus - vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling; industrial, timeworn or steampunk. There are so many possibilities to be creative with stencils on your cards, journals, layouts, ATCs or 3D projects. Stencils offer endless possibilities, be creative and have fun!"
I decided to join in with the challenge having recently purchased some AALL&Create stamps and stencils. I have seen several of my crafty friends use these stamps and Tracy Evans is also a designer for this wonderful company. View Tracy's blog HERE
The background was painted using two colours of Paperartsy Acrylic Paints using a brayer.
I then added some That's Crafty texture paste through the AALL&Create stencil. I then stamped various AALL&Create stamps using Jet Black Archival and Sepia Archival permanent ink. The edge of the card was inked with Black Soot DI, which then highlights the lovely paint colours and stamping.
I love the sentiment, which is suitable for my niece, who has just finished her 4th year exams and is off to London with her mum for a wee break.
I hope you get the chance to join in with us for this fabulous challenge that enables you to create yummy texture and various details in lots of ways on your crafty projects . If you enter the challenge and are chosen by the Creative Guides you will receive a Pinworthy Badge for your blog.
